As we discuss the social and emotional wellbeing of students, it is important to remind ourselves that the faculty and staff of Wellesley High School are in consistent and direct communication with students on a daily basis.
The Advisory Program is intended to build student-teacher relationships in an effort to ensure that all students at WHS have an adult in the building, other than their guidance counselor, who knows them well.
Clinical psychologists employed by Human Relations Service, Wellesley’s private, non-profit community mental health agency, providing short-term and ongoing school-based counseling, individually or in groups, for students in the regular education population who are experiencing a variety of social/emotional challenges.
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a program designed to provide temporary tiered intervention to
help identify appropriate supports for struggling learners. The ultimate goal is to graduate students
from the program with the necessary skills to independently and successfully achieve academic
success at Wellesley High School.
In accordance with federal and state laws and regulations, students identified as eligible for special education have an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) that is designed by a Team of individuals that includes district professionals, the parents/guardians, and the student, when appropriate.
